The Steps

  1. In a mixer with a dough hook attachment, combine the flour, honey, yeast and salt. Turn the mixer on low and slowly pour in the water and two tablespoons of olive oil.
  2. Allow the mixer to run until a smooth ball of dough has formed. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for 2 minutes. If the dough is too sticky, add up to ¼ cup flour, sprinkling it in as you knead.
  3. Use one tablespoon of olive oil to grease a large bowl. Place the dough in the bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel and place in a warm spot. Allow the dough to rise for 3 hours.
  4. Once the dough has tripled in size, heat the oven to 450 degrees. Sprinkle the cornmeal on a baking sheet and set aside.
  5. Punch down the dough to remove some of the air, then transfer to a lightly floured surface. Roll it out to the size of your baking sheet, the transfer to the baking sheet.
  6. Use the remaining olive oil to coat the dough. Combine all three cheeses, and sprinkle half of the cheese onto the dough, leaving ½ inch of dough all the way around the edges. Top with the squash and Brussels sprouts. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese and top with chopped walnuts, and prosciutto.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until dough is golden brown on the edges and cheese is melted.
